19/04/2011Posted by Ciaran

Such a difference a week makes. This time the Óg’s stilled to comfortable victory over local rival’s st Agnes.  A crowd from both clubs turned out to watch what turned out to be an excellent performance  from all the Óg’s players including the 5 subs who came on. The Óg’s, perhaps with the disappointment of the previous week still affecting them, started very slowly and allowed St Agnes to race in to an early lead. The Aggies reeled over 4 scores in the first 15 minutes but that was to be their last score until well into the second half.  After 15 minutes the Óg’s settled down and began to dominate possession around the middle with Aidan McGarrity, Steven Carson and James Lynn all prominent. The dominance around the middle allowed early ball to go to young Conor burns who was in excellent form and reeled off a couple of  excellent score. Well supported by Ronan Campbell ciaran Mc Areavy and Ciaran O’Neill up front the ogs dominated possession and only for some poor shooting prevented them build up bigger half time lead.

The second half continued with the ogs having the upper hand with Chris Murphy  in particular playing extremely well. Excellent scores from Conor Burns Daniel Reid, Michalel McCamley and Brendan haughey extended the score line and in the end the Óg’s ran out very convincing winners.
